    I'm trying to find out how many coax feeds come from a 3lnb slimline dish. there are currently 3 coming out and connecting directly to 3 lines coming into the house which feed 2 seperate regular tuners and 1 hd tuner. I want to run another line to a third regular tuner. Is that possible? the three lines I have do not run to a multi switch. Thanks for any help

    Yes, you can run one more line from the dish directly to a non-DVR receiver. If you upgrade any receiver to a DVR, or add an additional receiver, you will require a multiswitch because the dish only has four outputs.

    There are 4 outputs on the LNB. Yes you can add 1 more line without having to add a multiswitch. Anything more than 4 will require a multiswitch. Hope that helps.
